    Hi all,

    I've migrated back to android from iPhone and I can't seem to configure the lock screen to the way my iPhone was. Badically, with my iPhone I could have face recognition and leave the phone unlocked for an hour before it requires a pin. I could use my face recognition to log into apps with no problem.

    Is there a way to have the phone unlock via swipe and still be able to use face recognition to log into apps? It would be a bonus to have the pin require after a certain period of time too. I guess this would be the determining factor of whether or not I stay with android or return it. I find it to be a pain in the ass to unlock this phone because I'm tapping swiping inputting a pin etc .....

    It's unfortunate your S20 doesn't offer the lockscreen functions of your iphone. In other words, that sucks lol. :)

    You could also use fingerprint. If you do, I would advise registering and saving the same fingerprint several times. when it ask add additional fingerprints, I add 2 or 3 of the same finger. It will recognize my print on the forst attempt almost every time.
